Opera phoning home without permission

  • I am running Opera 53.0.2569.141117 on a Note 4, with Android 6.01. I just noticed the other day, for the first time ever, Opera telling there is an update available. I have Google set to "not" check for updates on the play store. And, this isnt a notification from Google, its all Opera.... showing up in the main menu.... "Update Available: Tap to install". I see no option in Opera setting, to turn this off. The only thing I see is ""Opera Notifications", which I have turned off. Am I missing something, or is Opera now phoning home on its own, without my permission/knowledge?
